What the feezy?!?
In the April issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine, the Olympic swimmer acknowledges that the Queen of E! "started from pretty much nothing, and now everyone everywhere knows who she is," he adds, "That's what I want to do."
Ever since Lochte has been dressing in sexXier duds, which includes designs from Tom Ford, he admits that a lot more people are recognizing him, so he feels that he can be just like Kimmy.
"I've seen what E! has done in the past with reality shows like hers. Today, she's huge. When I walk down the street, people recognize me, and that never happened before. Now's my chance."
We doubt that the 28-year-old can literally be the next Kardashian — especially because he didn't start his career with a hawt sex tape, but maybe after he hits on a lot of women on his reality show, he can build up his "playa" image.
Plus, since he's a hopeless romantic, it seems like he's already following in Kim's footsteps. All he has to do now is meet Kimmy so he can get some pointers, and maybe have a rapper's baby so he can add more personality to his "Lochte edge." LOLz
